-known authority of this body, the united states senate, is likely to be the advise and consent pri provisions. constitution. article 2, section 2, with the advice and consent of the senate the president shall appoint ambassadors and others. and there are about 1, 100 of those that the president appoints. and two years ago and then just last week we streamlined the confirmation process a little bit to narrow the focus on the most important appointees and make it easier to get them confirmed. so those are the checks and balances that the constitution meant to establish. they did that so that we would have liberty from a tyrannical executive branch, which is what the founders were worrying about, and the court is as that i had that the president exceeded that. thertherefore, these two memberf the nlrb should resign immediate lid and pack their bags and go home with our thanks for their hard work despite the fact that the cases they voted on ought to all b be vacated. a new sign needs to go up at the national labor relations board. take down the sign that say, open for business. put up a sign tha
rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb
of openly-gay members of congress and openly-gay united states senator and a president who stands up for lgbt rights. [applause] as democrats, our party will proudly continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with our lgbt brothers and sisters as we continue this fight. as democrats we are proud that our party truly reflects the diversity of america. we should also be proud that our party made a commitment to insure that our diverse orty is reflected in our day-to-day o operations. by the way, it is no coincidence that this cycle we hired -- [inaudible] and exceeded our one-third diversity spend goal at the democratic national convention. and we have a president who leads the way. i could not have been more proud of our president more yesterday, particularly when he so eloquently reminded us that as americans our journey is not complete until it's complete for everyone. remember when he said our journey is not complete until our wyoming withs, our mothers and daughters can earn a living equal to their effort, our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like
the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>bria
that the border is secure before anybody could pass from contemporarily and the united states to being able to apply for permanent residency. i have been struck by the enormous expenditures already that the government is spending. i noted in my column this week, the federal government spent $18 billion last year on border security, which is more than the combined budgets of the fbi, marshals service, the secret service, the dea, the atf -- all of these other federal law- enforcement agencies. their total budgets for only $14 billion. we are spending a huge amount on border security already. your sense of what the president is saying on the other hand that he doesn't want to have this kind of certification, that he has already secured or wants to secure the borders in his first term. >> let's just remember [indiscernible] the border enforcement benchmark that we discussed in 2006 the border has seen a buildup of enforcement. today, we have 400 miles of fencing and place, double the border patrol agents on the ground which is up to 22,000. we have deployed the national guard. as you say, we h

know, i know a senator from the utah who wrote a memo to the president of the united states after he got elected and said this is a nixon goes to china moment for you. >> which senator from utah would this have been? >> the junior senator. >> which president would this have been? >> the newly elected one. >> i see. >> instead this is the nixon goes to china moment for you. because if you can be the first democratic president in history to say we have to do something about entitlements, you can build enough political capital that you can then do whatever you want in health care or environment or energy or anything else. >> so there's momentum building for something big? something to solve the problem. i want to hear you talking to one another about what that would be. >> the business community, i believe, let me just say would applaud this. in fact, if we knew that there was a real bipartisan push for infrastructure spending, it might help us keep two factories open. however -- >> really? >> absolutely. because it would be -- it would be work. it would be work. we need tractors. we ne
